The promoters offer very cheap packages on catamaran board trips
Mazatlan, Sin. Complaints about non-compliance on the walks to Isla de la Piedra, is a very recurring theme in Mazatlan during the high tourist season, said Rigoberto Rodríguez Meza.
The director of the Yacht Fiesta called on state and municipal authorities to regulate the provision of services, which damage the image of the destination.
Complaints of trips to the Isla de la Piedra in a catamaran is the same story that is repeated almost daily when people are vacationing in Mazatlan, the promoters who over-promise them many things and do not deliver
Rodríguez Meza commented that operators sell rides at a very low cost, do not carry control and saturate the ship, and this causes them to hardly fulfill the service offered.
It follows the same problem and also the unfair competition of very cheap rates, but when giving the service they do not meet the expectations of the people and come to the complaints, disagreements

The service provider explained that currently in the area of Farohay there are ten companies, and in La Marina six, but the latter is a little different and they are well priced, the problem is here where they sell up to 200, 250 and 300 pesos for the ride.
Given this, he said that the first instance to put order must be the Senior Official, because it is assumed that he is the one who regulates the commercialization of the rides and they get very good income from the license fees for the sale of catamaran rides, and the other Authority is supposed to be the Ministry of Tourism, although it does not benefit with a tax, it is the one that should be the authority.
He indicated that the activity is supposed to be regulated, but it is a world of promoters that you have, against the few inspectors the city offers, and that makes it impossible to regulate.
Throughout the Malecon, beaches, Aquarium and everywhere are the promoters, they get out of the hotels and continue to offer very cheap packages, which generates unfair competition
